Prós: nice old hotel with a nice museum in the basement and some history. rooms were clean for Chinese standards
Contras: dated and some broken/worn features. i couldn't really tell if I got a non smoking room as they have that smokey smell to them. carpets a little grubby I think but once again difficult to tell. rooms too hot to sleep well for me and too noisy to open the window. no a/c only heat at this time of year. breakfast buffet good but a little pricey for the food offered.
Contras: Very noisy !!! Third floor is the floor we can access to the mall , but that floor is noisy like hell. Thete are people partying all the time. You can actually smell alcohol right after got out from elevator. People has no manners.... Man never let women go in elevator first and they never hold doors for women. Chinese people I see here in Tianjin are like animals.
